Lee Bryant

Lee Bryant has been a fixture of the Tampa Bay area music scene for more than a decade. He has served as a sideman playing keyboards for various bands including: The Ditchflowers, Rich Whiteley Band, Earth Bombs Mars and Magnolia Creek. In 2008, Lee decided to pursue songwriting of his own and released his debut album "Good Advice." The style could be described as modern Americana, drawing from influences like Warren Zevon and Jackson Brown. Not afraid to stretch stylistically, "Good Advice" blends music from: rock, country, jazz, blues and bluegrass. The album was met with local praise and positive reviews from sites like GarageBand.com and Taxi.com. "Good Advice" has been played on several internet radio stations and even found its way to a small terrestrial public station in Australia. Encouraged by the personal success of his first album, Lee is releasing this follow up titled "Solstice". He has assembled the same cast and crew for this second go-around including venerable Tampa Bay guitar legend and producer Steve Connelly.

1992-1994

Before relocating to Tampa, Lee teamed up with high-school chum Bill Carroll in Chesapeake Bay favorite "No Such Thing." This group was selected as a finalist for the Yamaha National Battle of the Bands contest. Several songs wound up on local radio spotlights and Voice of America international radio broadcasts.

1987-1991

Earlier in his career, Lee was a founding member of D.C. area favorite "Train of Thought." During the late '80s and early '90s the band had the opportunity to open for the likes of: Blues Traveler, Fairport Convention, New Riders, The Samples, and Dave Mathews. At their height, "The Train" was a featured act at many Mid-Atlantic college festivals, performing in front of thousands of people. Former band-mate Mike Stinson has since become a well-known country artist based out of Houston, poised to become a national name. During this time Lee also earned a Bachelors of Science in Recording Arts from The American University. It is here that Lee pursued the technical side of music making, recording and producing several local area bands in AU's 24 track studio.

1983-1986

High school was where Lee's interest in music began dedicating himself to learning the craft of Rock keyboards. Lee credits band-mate Luke Ebbin for showing him how to play a proper 7th chord. (Luke went on to produce Bon Jovi.)
